Luke 16: 10-13
“Whoever can be trusted with very little can be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will be dishonest with much. So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else’s property, who will give you property of your own?
“No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.”
God has truths that will never change: We cannot serve God and money: We cannot serve God and Satan: If we are faithful with little, we will be faithful with much: If we haven’t been trustworthy with our handling of worldly wealth, who would trust us with true riches? If we are not faithful with care for someone else’s property, why would someone give us our own property? It appears to me that God is very interested in how we live our everyday lives–how we care for the things (including our finances) that He has entrusted to our care.
Father help us to be good stewards, accountable of how we treat others, their property, our property, and our finances. Help us to be honest, trustworthy, willing to give, and above all to be devoted to you. We love and thank you, in Jesus’ name, amen.
